Larry cut my hair for over 10 years. He was always pleasant and we had many short, but meaningful conversations. I'm going to miss him.

Gail and I are so saddened by Larry's passing. It is a reminder that life is too short. When I visited with Larry in the hospital we had a great conversation and he was very proud of you girls. He was showing me pictures of you both, and the grandkids. It was a good visit.

Larry was a quiet man with a sweet spirit about him. He was a brave firefighter and a good husband and father and I know you are proud of him.

I rejoice when I think of his reunion with mom and dad and look forward to my reunion with them when God is finished with me here.
